I even lined the interior, like a proper purse:
Then I got into decoupage...haven't done that in YEARS!
I made a couple things for school, we have a superhero theme this year:
I found a giant paperboard "P" at Wally World and covered it with comics.
It hangs outside my door. Most of my students cannot pronounce my last name so they all call me Mrs. "P."
I also covered a cigar box to hold junk that is on my desk...I forgot how much FUN it is to decoupage something. Easy to go crazy and start covering everything!
